, attack hannity, limbaugh, hewitt, well bortz, fox news, what a shock, fox news. >> they've attacked fox? sean: can you believe? >> but that's funny. when people have the right to ask what is going on, where is my taxpayer money going, what is going to happen to my health care and my choices and my freedoms, they get mad. sean: people are asking smart questions. >> and they don't like it and people like sean hannity or rush rush limbaugh are inciting mobs, inciting fear. just answer our questions and there won't be a problem. sean: all right. so the net fallout is if mcdonald wins in virginia, and christie wins in new jersey, that tells us what? >> that tells us that the democrats had better back up in a hurry. if i were a democrat in the house i wouldn't vote after this until after i saw those elections. if christie and mcdonald win, that's trouble for them. sean: the blue dogs if they support cap and tax -- >> they're done. sean: stimulus, they're done. >> they're history. sean: are you ready for our concert?

post" putting the facts out. what i'm urging individuals to do, not just listening to rush limbaugh, pull out facts, get nonpartisan groups, talk to them, talk to hops and health care provider, et cetera because for the first time everybody's invested in this. the president's had pharmaceutical company, health care providers, hospitals, community health centers all work on this together to make a difference and that's why i believe, and know that we're going to pass a bill that will take us in the right direction that's going to cover more americans for health care, make sure that people that have preconditions that are not denied for and forcing people in bankruptcy and bring down the cost. >> an interesting month listening to you and your swaernts. >>> >> a family spokesperson says eunice shriv is critically ill. a spokesman for arnold schwarzenegger says the golf governor is there with the family in cape cod. 88-year-old shriver a champion for the disabled about best known for her work to establish the special olympics. >>> the widow of tv pitchman billy mays says she's angry ove
limbaugh back at the end of may saying that obama hates white people. pat buchanan saying white men are, quote, experiencing exactly what black people experienced during segregation, which is, of course, absurd, that kind of rhetoric underlying this opposition makes it very hard for me to think that race is not in the picture. >> okay. so then if we're going to put blame on anyone's shoulders, whose fault is it anyway? is it people buying into the rhetoric or some of the people you mention, some of the conservative talk show hosts there. should they be more responsible with their language because people may be buying into what they're saying and not realizing that it's coded racism. >> well, words have consequences, and i think if you're going to have a microphone and you're going to speak to millions of listeners every day, you have a responsibility to, first of all, do your homework so you don't tell lies about the health care bill and act like they're going to kill grandma and then send sarah palin out there with a head full of nothing to tell lies to the american people. and when yo

blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's
say she's pro abortion and i remember rush limbaugh even back in june said her record on abortion is not clear. what is your objection to her nomination? >> she's been evasive on a number of questions. i met with her privately. i asked her some fairly simple questions about the constitution, the bill of rights. she seems more founded in precedent than in upholding the constitution. and a number of us are very concerned about an activist court that's trying to expand what the constitution intends for the federal government to do. >> do you think that her record has been a record of an activist? >> we have some problems with a number of her decisions, particularly on bill of rights questions such as the second amendment. the decision that she made about the firemen was questionable. a lot of her speeches suggest that she has a different idea of what a justice should do. but she had some confirmation conversions, and she came back to the point of view of a constructionist type of judge. but she has not been consistent in her comments and seems very evasive wit
limbaugh -- because we do need both. rush limbaugh rallies the crowd and is a good job of educating people on issues. but you will rarely hear him say call congress. it is other voices is a call congress or go to your tea party. we need a variety of voices. the problem in the blogosphere, and we are really bad about this compared to the left, is if i do something at red state, a protest, there's going to be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would just do it their way instead of my way it would be more effective. you get that everywhere, but the right is notorious about everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or george will or glenn back. -- glen beck. i am a big believer at throwing stones are republican politicians have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house and it will hurt us because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. that's why we need to grow a lot of stone's right now so they figure things out before next year. inly the ri
senator called the protesters un-american. she retracted that. rush limbaugh went on a long speech during his radio show where he compared democrats to nazis. he compared the president to hitler. i am wondering if the president has seen any of this. the nazi imagery has been condemned by jewish groups but i'm wondering if he feels anything about this. >> i think he has seen news reports. i don't know whether it is written or cable reports. regardless of where we are and the differences we have on an issue as important as health care, i know the president believes strongly that we can discuss these issues without personally maligning the person we are discussing this issue with. we want to do so in a way that respects the dignity of each individual. i think anytime you make references to what happened in germany in the '30's and 40's, i think you are talking about an event that has no equivalent. anytime anyone ventures to compare anything to that, they are on thin ice. it is best not deployed. we can have a discussion in our democracy about where we want to go and why or why not we want t
limbaugh and sean hannity and george bush are at greater risk of assassination van barack obama. >> guest: as a fun part of the book. in the last chapter i point out i wouldn't have mentioned it if they haven't brought it up so much other ad campaign you keep hearing about this unique rest of, is that being assassinated because he is black in and this is unlike any other president or any other presidential candidate in the call in for a special secret service protection and article about i'm so worried review it and there was some liberal in britain sank in the is elected he will be assassinated so i wouldn't have mentioned if they haven't been dangling the big red tape in front of me but in point of fact pretty much every presidential assassination or attempted assassination in the history of america was committed by a liberal. some version have entered his communist palestinian extremists and there are a couple who didn't particularly have politics someone include john wilkes booth in that and john hinckley, but envelopes with casey was an actor. he was being hit a piece maugre in and t
is not that we need pundits or activists, we need both. rush limbaugh rallies in the crowd, does a good job of educating people on the issues. others are the ones you rarely will hear calling congress. we need a variety of voices. the problem of the blogosphere is the writing. if i do something that protests, there will be someone who will spend 10,000 words writing why i either should not do it or if i would do it their way instead of my way it will be much more effective. you get that everywhere. the right is notorious about that, everyone wants to be the next rush limbaugh or gen -- george will. the problem is when we start throwing stones to each other as opposed to throwing stones at the other side. i am a big believer at throwing stones at republican politicians who have gotten out of line. [applause] as i said this morning, we are rapidly getting to a situation where we may just take back the house, and it will hurt us, because we have not learned all the lessons we need to learn. we can throw a lot of stones right now. in the right blogosphere, you have some a competing voices is th
megaphones out there you have rush limbaugh saying these crazy things like the obama health care symbol looks like a nazi symbol and encouraging further elements of the fringe from believing and stoking crazy rumors. that's a hard thing for any white house to counteract. they've been aggressive about. they are putting out web videos and they have an interactive process in which they ask supporters to let them know about crazy talk that's out there so that they can rebut it. that's not easy. we have a culture as you know 24/7 news through social networks, through cable, through the internet and it's hard for political leaders to try to counter and stay ahead of that. >> there's no control. john harwood, always good to see you, my friend. thank you so much. >>> sarah palin is calling the health care plan evil. she posted her thoughts on her facebook page on friday. she says the america i know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with down syndrome will stand in front of the death panel so bureaucrats can decide based on a subjective judgment of their level of productivity in socie

's comparing health care reform to a panel of death? rush limbaugh compared it to naziism. is sarah jumping on rush's bandwagon? more lawmakers jumping on the bandwagon. the president asked for the money for four jets. congress double down, decided to allow enough money for eight. recession? deficit anyone? and here's a shocking plane story, a continental flight packed with passenger forced to divert because of rotten weather as if that's not enough of a headache, the people were trapped on the plane overnight at the airport. not allowed off. we're going to talk to one of those passengers. good morning, everyone. i'm contessa brewer. the big story we're watching, divers are in the hudson river trying to recover the bodies of two victims still mising from saturday as mid air collision. nine people in all were killed when a private plane and a sight seeing helicopter collided over the hudson. the bodies of seven people have been pulled from the river. earlier new york city mayor michael bloomberg addressed concerns that crowded airspace should have more restrictions. >> sadly, you know, somet

the last minute to talk about that episode. he became the soaring, rush limbaugh and others said you will be biased in your hosts in this debate and the walter cronkite. it was to be the subject of that furious continent -- controversy for a while? >> guest: i use it but at the time i was presented by my little possy who do not let me see a lot of what was said in which was a good thing because afterward and said it my god i never would have done this because there's senes but it was helpful. people like rush limbaugh who is an entertainer and can say whatever he dislikes but did not a i mean and the people i thought i knew and should have it is a small effort to get it right and those of the people who i felt unfairly treated by the people who i did not know who were mean to me i didn't care and the vast majority in turned out for people who did know and work with me and who immediately sent this can't be sure and i felt vindicated by that. >> host: thank you, gwen ifill, author of a "the breakthrough: politics and race in the age of obama". also visible on your local pbs statio

limbaugh. this guy in miami beach is blaming president obama for the state of his job? he should be blaming bush. bush was in office eight years. z no are a result much 12 years of republicans taking jobs to other countries. >> you talked about folks who have stopped looking for jobs. >> out sources has continued over the years. there's also jobs that are in sourced there is a little bit of a balance. in terms of the stats. you are counted as unemployed if you are actively looking. if you've stopped looking, then you become the discouraged worker and you drop off the rolls. i think it is best to look at the general trend on the unemployment rate. we are seeing some of the worst unemployment we've had since the depression. host: in the hartford current, they have a map of the u.s. this is not seasonally adjusted. the states in white have unemployment rate below 8%. in light orange social security 8-10%. the states in dark orange, the unemployment rate is above 15%. can you explain why it seems more people are out of work along the coasts? >> part has to do with the real estate bubble we had.
of registered voters, up 11%. in this time, she broke her elbow and was forced to dismiss the limbaugh's that she would be marginalized. since june, same category for president obama is declining. trace: thank you. jennifer griffin is at the pentagon following stress training. >> that is right, the u.s. army is starting a pilot program to inoculate soldiers from the stress of combat. the $117 billion program will soon be in part of basic training. the research was done at the university of pennsylvania. trace: thank you. juliet: we are going to talk about hurricane bill gathering strength as it turns across the atlantic. forecasters expected to turn into a major storm in the next few days. janice dean says that the new england coast need to be cautious. what is the latest? >> we are still five days away from knowing where the storm will know, the intensity, landfall pinpoint. one thing we are sure of it is the storm is strengthening. we have a well-defined eye now. there is the track. as we go further out in time, a bit more uncertainty. take a look at the new england coast line. kicko
. >> you might have heard their philosophical leader, i think his name is rush limbaugh ap he said early on, i hope that he fails. do you know what that means? if the president, your commander-in-chief fails, america fails. so remember, they are spreading fear and they're trying to see that the first president who looks like me fai fails. >> wow, that was california congress woman diane watson at a town hall meeting in los angeles and that's not the only shocking thing she had to say. there is even more. joining me to weigh in is radio talk show host and fox news contributor mike gallagher been a while. >> it's been a while. i don't know if president obama would be complimented or offended to hear that he looks like her, he may not like that comparis comparison. >> that's another question. you bring up a good point. i'll bet the president wantsening to do with that comment because the president does not want race brought into the equation ands' made that very clear. why did diane watson oon make it an issue. she knows rush limbaugh criticism has nothing to do with race so why bring it up? >
side like rush limbaugh, god, and the facts, but -- but even with all that, how do you see the -- the conservative movement as a whole being able to communicate our message effectively to the american people as a whole and kind of the middle, nonpolitically elite class when we have such an establishment of media and, like, showmanship up against us where they twist our words and just sell lies all day that we can hardly combat? >> well, let me say, first of all, that i was active as a candidate during the rise of reagan and then i was a congressman for the last two years through the presidential campaign of 1980, and then i served with him for eight years in the congress when he was president. and we had -- you could argue that we had a harder time because we didn't have limbaugh, we didn't have fox news, we didn't have hannity, we didn't have the internet and so there was actually probably a greater net monopoly by abc, nbc, cbs, "the new york times" in that era than there is today. i have two practical pieces of advice for you. the first is sheer repetition. i mean, if yo
to rush limbaugh or something. what? the government? no, they got to be out of it. as though he had base -- base-itis or something. >> i don't know. i don't know. lil we, what do you think? >> i think -- i think we should go to politico? >> isn't that something, though? he did. he gets in a lot of trouble. >> well, you know. he is kind of a shoots from the hip a little bit. >> he does. >> by the way he operates and sometimes that gets him in a little bit of trouble i guess you can say. >> maybe behind the scenes and starts the raise money and organizing and things such as this. >> if your interview. >> stop being interviewed. unless on this show. >> always welcome here. >> so who do we have got politico? >> patrick flavin. let's talk about the politics. but the politics of the passing of the ted kennedy, you eve heard whispers already, some democrats about the health care debate saying let's win this one for teddy. they have to be careful with that, though, don't they? >> they do. for two reasons, for democrats the name of kennedy is golden and cherished but the name kennedy means libera
and right and wrong. >>> and rush limbaugh comparing president obama's health care low e lowgo to a swas ka. how does the talk compromise is whole darn country, contessa? >>> then women, this is the result, contessa, women have been driven to drink. the statistics show it. that story of the wrong way driver who killed seven, including four children, may not be an isolated case. a new report suggests women are drinking more than ever. >>> swine flu in schools. a live news conference this hour to announce the government's plan of action. dr. nancy snyderman will join us. it is 9:00 a.m. friday morning. nice to see you. >>> welcome. a nice day. >> this is big story of the morning here. this was supposed to be a town hall in tampa, florida. hosted by congresswoman, kathy castor. >> you work for us, you work for us. >> police estimated 1500 people tried to cram into an event. they jammed up against the doors. one guy says he was actually man handled, may end up going to police about it. >> one of them took my arm and doing a arm -- arm twist, tore my watch off, then the other one grabbed me by t
limbaugh will be joining me and we will be talking about what's happening at the fcc and clamping down on free speech. we have a diversity czar now at the fcc. this guy will be the key of shutting speech down, talk radio down, people like me, people like you on fox. if you are -- if you are not embracing the new diverse world, which means one opinion, you're done. gretchen: very interesting stuff because of we thought that debate had gone away. >> oh, no. it hasn't even started. gretchen: stick around if you will, glenn because the national debt as you know has reached staggering heights. glenn is going to stick around and weigh in on that topic. bill: a man buys a billboard in the hopes of saving his own life. we will hear from his family straight ahead. gretchen: we're back with glenn beck who is the fox news host and the author of the best selling book common sense. in fact, we were commiserating amongst otherselves earlier in the show wondering if president obama on reading list has common sense. >> not even the book. gretchen: it comes in paperback. it would be easy to just hand i
those. >> okay. >> i did find your article interesting yesterday. rush limbaugh showed great restraint, saying that he felt uncomfortable saying anything negative about senator kennedy as did michelle maul klkin, shed other republicans, back off. >> the only thing he said was senator kennedy was lion and we were his prey. that was actually pretty tame. chap paquiddick was one of the biggest buzz words online. ted kennedy may get the last word or a piece of his critics more in death than life. he has a new memoir coming out, being buds as his most open and honest discussions about some of the things that have taken place in his past. you have to assume chappaquiddick is one of those a. lot of critics say we think he should have talked about it more and apologized more and perhaps his book will put it to rest. >> he hasn't talked about it in 40 years and every time asked, said i answered those questions. anniversary coming up, not a good one in a couple weeks. the anniversary of the fall of lehman brothers, hard to believe it's been a year. september 15th. how will the white house mark t
on republicans, limbaugh. go ahead. caller: my senator, he did call the house and invited me in on a town hall meeting. he must know i'm a democrat. he was only calling on people for their comments. i was thinking about it while i was on the phone. he's saying all this stuff happening. like the other caller earlier said, there's really not a bill. i felt like he was giving out misunderstood to all of us. it is good that he called but i didn't get to comment. i didn't like the fact that he was giving his opinions rather than listening to any questions. host: how many questions did he take in caller: it went about 45 minutes. he just talked to us rather than listening to what we had to say. host: some people had comments. they were telling him about situations they were going through. thanks for calling in. >> people are either eligible for medicaid another 800-0000 are many that have healthcare. you are really looking at about 8 million people. that's a question you can have. you know right there they aren't telling you the truth. jo they don't cover the issue at these hearings. i paid 22 of t
is the president of as well. how many republicans are going to say, ok, rush limbaugh, you have to get over this because he is reaching out. host: are you supporting the public option? caller: honestly, i do not understand the public option. if it makes sense, we should try a, a public option or cooperative. -- we should try it, public option or cooperative. host: thank you. next caller. caller: i worked for the post office, our insurance -- we had every time that we wanted to pick from. we chose ourselves from all over the country. i do not see why we cannot have that now for everybody. host: next call from michigan on the independent line. good morning. what do you think about president barack obama? is he compromising too much? caller: i think that have a unique perspective on this situation. i am a health care provider that happens to own his own business. i have a daughter with a pre- existing condition. i also have first-time knowledge of the single payer run system in ireland. i think that the system out there does the most to decrease the prices in health insurance, and i will leave
stupid. we can talk with the other fat one, that rush limbaugh, and not to mention mostly all the people that get up there and carry on are from the south. they are ignorant, they have no teeth, they have no brains, and i'm so ashamed of them. i am so glad i do not live in the south. thank you. host: barbara? barbara's gone. in "the washington post" this morning grassley is the talk of town halls. this is by perry bacon who writes about the town hall meetings of senator charles grassley, the ranking member in the senate finance committee. "conservative activists mobilized early sending urgent e-mail alerts asking republicans to show up at meetings." some iowans, explained someone who strongly opposes the health care reform effort wonders if grassley is wandering off the reservation. curt, what's on your mind this morning? caller: thank god for c-span. i want to talk about the health care system. i am an immigrant. and since i come here, my wife have insurance. i don't use it, because i don't normally get sick, but she uses it a lot. man, i'm telling you, the bills are -- they are so craz
is getting anything out of this debate right now except maybe rush limbaugh and sean hannity. they make millions of dollars a week, you know, just keeping this disaster going, this division. but actually, i am educated as well as a lot of people out here listening. and when i look for a bill, what is my money going for? i want it to be a republican bill versus a democratic bill, and discuss the issues rather than just making up -- i do not know. host: are you getting -- are you paying attention to all the back and forth from "hardball" to cnn to glenn beck? caller: yes, but i do not appreciate it because i do not know what bill they are talking about. we have three different bills, and so far as a republican i see that we do not have a bill. so what are we talking about? host: the three bills on the house side are -with the house ways and means, on the senate side is the health, education, and labor committee. there is no final bill yet until sometime in the fall. the president indicating that that vote could come in november or even into december. the front page of "the washington time
they are basically racist, they listened three hours a day to their leader, the fact, drug addicted rush limbaugh, and i am very concerned about heard they show up with ak-47's because that "is their right." they want this president to not only heard but they want him gone, and if you know what gone means you get my drift because they are never, ever going to give him leeway. and a republican who calls before me, they are very few and far between and as far as joe mceachern, the inbred in georgia, he calls in all the time, he is one of the radicals about taking the country back. what have they lost with him and the white house? please, have them call in and tell me. host: on page a3 of "the washington post" this morning, white house backs rights arms outside obama events. robert gates, white house press secretary said people are entitled to carry weapons outside such events if local law allowing "there are laws that govern firearms better done state or locally," he said. "those laws don't change when the present comes to your state or locality." caller: did they do it before? this is a sign to ob
